So I decided to not use the military netting as it wasn't no-see-um. Have the zipper on, and am fairly happy with it. Waiting on my order of no-see-um to get here from OWF. Thumbs up to them, ordered it yesterday and it's already shipped. I'm actually working on three different projects at once, a sil hex tarp based on my hennessy hex, because I had enough sil laying around and needed a tarp for my safari, and then I picked up another netless expedition from JakobW in the for sale forum. I'm doing the same mod to it as I'm doing for the safari. About 1/2 way done putting the zipper on it. Got my tarp cut out, ridgeline and corners done, working on getting it hemmed. Amazing how one project leads to another!!
